Nagtibba Trek (1N/2D)

For those looking for a quick Himalayan escape, this 1 night itinerary on the Nagtibba route is a fantastic option. It takes you to the top of a ridge peak in the Nag Tibba range of the lower Himalayas, in just a day trek. You'll pass charming villages, terraced fields, and flowering trees en route to your campsite. You'll catch a beautiful sunset over the hills, and at night, you'll camp in comfortable tents with the sounds of nature outside. In the morning, you'll see gorgeous views of the peaks and of Mussoorie in the distance. On this route, you visit the Nag Devta temple on Day 2 before beginning your descent. You can expect to be back in Dehradun by 21:00 or 22:00 hrs.

IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip and requires a minimum of 4 persons to book.


Located in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas, the Nagtibba trek gives you a pleasant mountain experience, with terraced fields and green meadows, and beautiful flora and fauna all around. During the trek, you'll meet friendly locals like shepherds, farmers, and women working in the fields. At your campsite, you'll find that the ground is covered with wild mint, which the cook will pluck to make a deliciously refreshing cup of tea. It's a complete outdoors experience, with basic comforts like tents, sleeping bags, toilet tents, all led by a friendly team of guides and porters.
